benchracer1 Thanx Dan, That worked well.

DanTwoLakes I don't cut it back at all. If you cut too close you can screw up a seat cover or make it easier to pull apart. I've never had a problem leaving the excess, nor have I had a problem seeing or feeling any excess.

slodat I usually trim back that bulk so it lays flat once on the seat. Do you do something different Dan?

benchracer1 Thanx Dan. I kinda figured that was what you meant but I figured it best to ask before I sewed it down. The pic is a great help........Steve

DanTwoLakes Look at the picture on the far right of post #14 in this thread: CLICK HERE That's what I mean by "laying open" the finished seam before sewing over it. This happens to have a welt in between, but it's the same idea.

benchracer1 When you say lay the whole thing open I dont quite understand....Steve

DanTwoLakes This is a really good question! You can cut it on a 45 if you want, a lot of people do, but you will find that it is easier to lay the whole thing open without cutting it. Try it both ways, one side cut at a 45 and the other not cut at all, and you will see what I mean.

Before I make a cut

What is the proper way to cut the end here before I sew the facing to the cushion top? I want to avoid excess material and a lump in the facing I thought a 45 might help like I showed with he scissors
